    3.0 IIBA BABOK ® Guide Overview

    The Business Analysis Body of Knowledge (BABOK ® ) Guide is the collection of knowledge within the

    profession of business analysis and reflects current generally accepted practices. The BABOK ® Guide is

    defined and enhanced by the business analysis professionals who apply it in their daily lives. The BABOK ®

    Guide describes business analysis areas of knowledge, their associated activities and tasks, and the skills

    necessary to be effective in their execution.

    Since the BABOK ® Guide is growing and evolving, each release must be considered a move toward the

    complete body of knowledge. Additions will be made periodically based on feedback and changes to generally

    accepted practices. While specific business analysis techniques may be referenced in the BABOK ® Guide, the

    criteria for including information in the guide are that it is proven, generally accepted and widely applied. The

    BABOK ® Guide is a reference for professional knowledge for business analysis and provides the basis for the

    CBAP ® certification.

    The BABOK ® Guide is composed of six knowledge areas plus underlying competencies. Fo
